The Ballyvoyle Tunnel is a former Irish railway tunnel, located in County Waterford. It is one of the attractions of the Waterford Greenway, a 46km cycle route from Waterford to Dungarvan (take 2 days to complete the route). Built in 1878, it is no longer used by trains today.
The Ballyvoyle is a nice attraction if you like to immerse yourself in the heart of the buildings of yesteryear, with their wealth of historical anecdotes. It must be said that the tunnel is of real architectural interest.
The building has retained all its 1878 features: elliptical head openings, ashlar voussoirs, barrel vault… The tunnel is beautiful, very well preserved and nature has managed to invade the tunnel in places, which gives it an additional charm.
You can walk or cycle through it freely, for a stroll out of time and space.
